What would you do if your neighbour was keeping a pot-bellied pig in their home?
Just like a dog or a cat, but a pig.
Sheldon is an 80 pound slice of back bacon that resides with Diane Hinds and her partner at their mountain home.
They own Lazy Dazy Animal Haven for sick pets that have no place to go.
Public bylaws say you can have up to four pets in your home, but no pigs, unless they were registered prior to the 2012 law.
They would be exempt from the law as Sheldon was with them before that.
However they weren’t sure he would live and registration was the last thing on their minds.
Bylaw officers are now trying to assemble the appropriate paper work to see if Sheldon is exempt from the law.
They have already decided to take their love of saving animals to a more rural area but want people to realize pigs are pets too and are greatly misunderstood.
Yes I did ask if they eat bacon, and how Sheldon might react to that.
No. We’re vegetarian.
